Home » Electrical » Carbon Monoxide & Smoke Detectors

Your family’s health and safety is our number one priority, just as it is yours. It’s why we emphasize getting electrical work done by a licensed electrician, rather than risking the dangers of a DIY electrical repair or installation. It’s also why we encourage every homeowner to have carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors placed throughout the home.

Smoke Detectors Save Lives

Most people know that smoke detectors save lives. Smoke can fill a home quickly, so it is important that you are alerted soon enough to get the whole family out of the house before the home gets a chance to go up in flames. However, many Chicagoland residents don’t realize just how important it is to have carbon monoxide detectors in the home as well. These devices are as much life–savers as smoke detectors, and almost any home can benefit from one.

Why You Need Professional Carbon Monoxide Detector Installation

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas. It is toxic, and while some people experience symptoms of illness with a carbon monoxide leak, for others it can result in death. You won’t be able to detect it any other way, and it can leak from your furnace or any other fuel–burning appliance. Carbon monoxide detectors save lives, and you should have one, at the very least, near every area where people sleep.

Professional installation wires your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors into the walls in an ideal location. Call an electrician to get these life–saving devices in your home today.

Caring for Your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

If you don’t take proper care of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, they could fail you when you need them most. More likely, though, is that you’ll have to deal with that annoying chirping sound signaling you to change the batteries at 3 A.M. Make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors get the care they need!

  • Test the alarms each month by holding down the button on the front.
  • Change the batteries every 6 months. We recommend using daylight saving time as a convenient way to remind yourself to reset the clocks and change smoke and CO detector batteries.
  • Replace the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors every ten years, or before the manufacturer’s estimated lifespan. You can find the manufacturing date printed on the back of the alarm.

When licensed electricians install your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, you know they will work reliably. A unit that is hardwired into the walls is less likely to fail when you need it (but it’s still important to continue to change the batteries!). For more information, contact the team at ServiceMax.
